PARACOSMIC SUN
February 9 – March 7, 2017

Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 8 from 5-8pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, February 25 at 2pm

In the not so distant past, there was a beautifully poetic vision theory that proclaimed the eye to contain a small crystal, carefully shaping the light so that it may bring us illumination. Much is still left to our imagination when determining what we see. Our vision captures as well creates, fills-in or otherwise completes what we perceive; one need only look for the blind spots in the center of the sightline or the afterimages orchestrated by the brain. Like crystals, our eyes mediate light and what we see. Paracosmic Sun presents work that considers these questions through the theme of crystalline vision.
